I hope they can perform this again so she gets another chance at some of those 3rd position pitches! We have Joshua Bell CDs - favorites around here! Love his Kreisler CD too.

Well, we will be united in prayer as members of the Confraternity! My eldest chose St. Joan of Arc and my second combine Sts. Maria Goretti and Therese of Lisieux. Come to find out - in the ambulatory of the Cathedral there is a stone from the castle wall where St. Joan was imprisoned (photo of this on smugmug)! She and her sponsor (also her French tutor) knelt there to pray afterwards. Such a special moment! Thank you for your kind words - it was quite the special day. We never quit laboring in some way over our children! Can't wait to see what you are up to with the sewing machine. All Saints costumes perhaps?

You are in my shadow - I hope I am not blocking the light! Our math journey might make an interesting post, though it's far from over!

I'm experimenting with some designs. Tell me how you like the latest one. Wish we could talk to him too, but we can pray in case he can intercede for us!

But in the long run, won't they be ever-so-glad we made them take Latin? All the experts day it will pay off eventually. So pleased you enjoyed this one - stay tuned for more!

Just a different canned format Typepad offers the lowly $5/month customers! Photos aren't too big or unfocused - good for the vision impaired like I'm getting to be. Not sure if they really lack sharpness or I need to upgrade my monitor. Glad you enjoyed and hope you like the others too. We would LOVE to visit! February? We'd love to see you too!
